EPL: Sarri reveals player that’ll take Fabregas’ position at Chelsea”

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says Ethan Ampadu is not yet at the level to replace Cesc Fabregas as a back up for Jorginho in the heart of the midfield.

Bayern, for example, would not be willing to offer the same amount come the summer transfer window, though they will remain interested in a player seen as pivotal in the necessary rebuilding job at the Allianz Arena under Niko Kovac.

However, it seems that Maurizio Sarri's side are closing in on another new signing, with the player himself dropping a massive hint about the impending move. "I spoke with the club and the club knows very well my opinion", he said.

"Willian, for us, is a very important player".

GM Scott Layden explains decision to replace Tom Thibodeau with Ryan Saunders
Saunders is the son of former Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders . "We've got a good group of people that make things a lot easier...

"[N'Golo] Kante breaks and there's nothing in front of him, Willian's going to try and catch up, Kante has to hold it up and that's not his game". "It has been left short in only one position at the moment because I think that Hudson-Odoi is improving".

Sarri, though, has digged his heels in over Hudson-Odoi, and he is not impressed with Bayern Munich's continued pursuit of him. Marcotti also revealed how Chelsea's most important players will out of contract in 2020.

Goal understands that, despite an increase in minutes for the Under-17 World Cup victor, it could be a case of too little, too late for Chelsea as they fight a losing battle in terms of securing Hudson-Odoi's long-term future.

Betway's Alan Alger said: "Bayern Munich have made no secret of their desire to lure Callum Hudson-Odoi to Germany in January and the odds suggest the move could be on the cards sooner rather than later". But, his strength is not only limited to crisp passing as the 23-year-old is also known for his excellent positional awareness that allows him to stay one step ahead of the opposition.

He's been battling a hip injury for more than a year. "I am in a better place than I was six months ago but I am still in a lot of pain".

Sarri has handed Hudson-Odoi a place in his starting line-up for Chelsea's past two matches - Tuesday's League Cup semi-final loss to Tottenham Hotspur and the 2-0 FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest last weekend in which the teenager set up both of Alvaro Morata's goals.

"It was better [against Newcastle] with the other wingers in attacking spaces".

"Of course, if Morata will go to another club we need a replacement".
